Publisher Description

My Place begins with Sally Morgan tracing the experiences of her own life, growing up in suburban Perth in the fifties and sixties. Through the memories and images of her childhood and adolescence, vague hints and echoes begin to emerge, hidden knowledge is uncovered, and a fascinating story unfolds - a mystery of identity, complete with clues and suggested solutions. Sally Morgan's My Place is a deeply moving account of a search for truth, into which a whole family is gradually drawn; finally freeing the tongues of the author's mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.

Author Biography

Sally Morgan was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1951. She is a full-time painter and writer. For as long as she can remember Sally wanted to paint and write. However, at school she was discouraged from expressing herself through her art because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not until she researched her family history and discovered her Aboriginal identity that she found meaning in her images, and gained the confidence to pick up her paints again. Both her books and her paintings and screenprints have earned awards and wide-spread popularity.

Review

"One of the most significant milestones in Aboriginal literature." --Australian Magazine "A moving and quite remarkable account of personal discovery." --Sydney Morning Herald "Funny and sad and very real: a satisfying and absorbing book, a unique record." --Pittburgh Press "Sad and wise and funny . . . unbelievably and unexpectedly moving, Sally Morgan's love for her own spiritual and racial roots and her struggle to uncover them reveals a new Australia (the old) and a new way to embrace the elders and the young of all our peoples, wherever (and whoever) they might be. A book with heart." --Alice Walker, author, The Color Purple "A book for everyone: a book with the form and texture of a novel and the complexity and pace of a mystery not solved until the final pages. It is wonderfully entertaining." --New York Times Book Review "A triumphant story that makes you glad it's been told." --Times on Sunday
